Karl Blau
Who: "Blau has a thick, marshy voice that tends to plod along slowly through his sage-like and surreal stories. His songs often feel like slackly constructed folk collages that are pieced together in a foggy embankment of analog drones and shaken up with weird protrusions of spindly guitars and jazzy woodwinds." -- Todd McKenzie (link)
